For the past few years I've been slowly but surely greening up my living space- when I need to buy something I first look to the world of greener goods to find a more environmentally friendly option. I already have all the obvious bases covered with bio-safe cleaning solutions and recycled paper products but I've also been working to green up things like my transportation (electric bikes for the win) and shoes (so many cool greener shoes).
So when I noticed that it was probably a good time to get a new set of sheets, I got in touch with the folks over at Gaiam and asked if I could review a pair of their organic cotton sheets.
I picked out the 250-thread-count Organic Cotton Solid Percale Bedding and decided on the aloe green color (as opposed to tidal blue, the other option).
The sheets and pillowcases felt stiff after the first couple of washes but loosened up after each washing. I've had them for a few months now and they've turned into a soft and comfortable set of bedding. One of life's great pleasures is slipping into bed after putting on a fresh set of sheets and pillowcases and the Gaiam organic percale bedding set does not disappoint on this end.
The pillowcases costs $28 for a set of two, the sheets costs $99 for twin, $109 for double, $119 for queen, and $149 for king. Both color choices use "low eco-impact dyes" in addition to organic cotton.

Full Disclosure: I received the sheets from Gaiam for free to review.
